Leader Visits Imam Khomeini’s Mausoleum

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Wednesday visited the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini in the south of the metro Tehran area to pay tribute to the founder of the Islamic Republic ahead of the 36th anniversary of the return of the late Imam Khomeini from exile under the rule of the ousted dictator Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.  
Later, the Leader visited the tombs of former chief justice Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti and 72 senior officials martyred in the terrorist bombing of the Islamic Republic Party office in central Tehran on June 28, 1981 and the tombs of martyrs to pray for their souls.
Imam Khomeini returned to Iran from exile to Paris on February 1, 1979.   
The next ten days are called the Ten-Day Dawn in Iran because the victory of the Islamic Revolution occurred on February 11, 1979.    
President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet also visited the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini on the same day to renew allegiance to the objectives and ideals of the founder of the Islamic Republic.
The president said the government is bound to follow Imam Khomeini's path and the guidelines of his rightful successor Ayatollah Khamenei.
Elsewhere, Rouhani said the government is determined to make good on its pledges to the people.
